Clan chiefs should be treated with the respect they deserve. They are
responsible for the lives and livelihoods of their Clansmen. While everyone
out with the Clan wasn’t necessarily myrmidons, they at least recognized
the power and authority of their Chief. Chiefs need to assure that all
pertinent information is relayed to their Clan (including this document.)
Clan men and women should provide their Chiefs the help and support necessary
to make the weekend an enjoyable one for all. Remember, Clan Chiefs will
be supplying manpower for various tasks in and around the Royal Headquarters.
Each Clan shall share the honor and privilege of providing service and
protection to the Royal Household. Clans should be prepared to provide
gate guards and runners, as well as standard bearers and pickets for the
Prince’s travels. Clans are asked to assign these honors to the
best men that they have as a way of recognizing the outstanding men of
the Clan. Saturday and Sunday will be divided into shifts and assignments
made on Saturday morning. Clans with pipers are also going to be allowed
to share in the honor of providing Royal Pipers. This also will be scheduled.
The finest pipers will have the honor of piping his Highness into battle.
Chiefs are encouraged to plan a Clan review, a protocol education session,
an historical overview, or maybe a question and answer session for the
men and women of their Clan. A variety of people have volunteered to provide
these activities. All of us should take the opportunity the weekend provides
to learn, advance our craft, share research, and help one another fulfill
the event’s potential.
Please pay close attention to your Clan Chief, Military Commander, or
the Prince Regent whenever they are addressing the participants. This
is especially important when instructions are being given to the ranks,
and when we are on the battlefield.
This is not a free-for-all. We are re-enacting specific incidents and
that requires all of us to coordinate our efforts. The few safety problems
we have had are directly related to individuals not getting pertinent
information. The level of professionalism we display also bears directly
upon our ability to attract quality units for the Hanoverian side, and
our ability to find appropriate sites for the event. Outside of your camp,
please keep in mind the gravity and importance of the events we strive
to recreate. There is not an “opt-out” alternative. Your participation
is required throughout the weekend.
